    Agreed, although I would probably use the word average instead of normal.

    Hi...

    Just checked with two specialists, one of whom does VBT. Both said her curve was way too large for tethering. I'm guessing that whoever operated on her was either 1) clueless or 2) felt...

    I think that's probably a big part of the issue. It's also possible that it will take a long time for her soft tissues to get used to the new configuration.

    She's pretty amazing.

    I'm really surprised that anyone would have tethered that curve. Unfortunately, I seriously doubt it will hold over time, and I'd be willing to bet that she'll end with a...

    Hi...

    Lucency around screws is actually pretty common, and you shouldn't jump to the conclusion that you'll need more surgery. In most cases, the patient goes on to have a solid fusion. Does the...

    I don't have the patience to read the article. Does it mention anything about the trillions of $ borrowed by the government, in an effort to balance the budget? Since that money belongs to...

    First, I'm not sure we can trust Mnuchin to tell the truth about the numbers. Second, even if he's right, the article says there will be an 11% shortfall in 2026, so it's unlikely Medicare will...

    I think that was Social Security. As far as I know, the only problem with Medicare is that Mitch and his friends want to significantly reduce Medicare.

    You're definitely between a rock and a hard place. It doesn't really change my opinion. If you expect your bone quality to worsen, having implants attached to your spine could absolutely be...

    Hi...

    I've never seen Dr. Stevens professionally, but know him from the time he was a fellow at UCSF. I think he's giving you good info. It sounds like he's saying he can keep your curve from...

    Hi Eddie...

    There are a bunch of us who have had lumbar punctures for one reason or another, including many who have their entire lumbar spines fused. It should not be a problem.

    Hi Jenson...

    For my last spine surgeries, I had little to no back pain after surgery. For my surgeries in 2010, they took me completely off all pain meds except Tylenol, about 2-3 days postop...

    Hi Jenson...

    I prefer chairs like THIS. You just need to be sure that the cushions are firm enough so you don't sink in too much. Arms are a must in the early recovery period.
